Big Machine was founded in 2015 by Rob Conery (me). Before this happened, Rob (me) made videos for Pluralsight, and before that he made videos (and wrote stuff) for himself through his company Tekpub. Rob likes to explore things - perhaps a better way of putting it is that Rob likes to break things - it's what he does best. He asks questions, makes people cranky sometimes, listens to their answers and then tries to break things again. This tends to annoy people. The goal is worth it, however! Which goal, ask you? It's his singular goal of sharing what he's found with you. Yes, YOU. He might not have ever met you but it doesn't matter: he wants you to have more fun at your job. He wants you to be educated in your strong opinion. To care a bit more deeply about a given technology that you cling to. He wants you to love what you do. That's really about all there is to it... so he writes books and makes videos. That's Big Machine.
